With Mystic Tan, you’ll get a beautiful tan no matter how you prepare!

If you plan to shave or exfoliate, we recommend doing so prior to your spray tan to avoid stripping away your color too early. Keeping your skin moisturized is important, but skip lotion in favor of our Booster Lotion to balance your skin’s pH for an even more beautiful tan.

Yes! You can certainly use Mystic Tan products if you’d like to deepen the color of your suntan, or prolong that vacation glow. Just keep in mind that self-tanning doesn’t protect your skin from the sun, so you’ll still need SPF the next time you hit the beach.
This depends on whether you’re using instant or gradual self-tan products. Instant tan products contain cosmetic bronzer to make it look like you have a tan right away, while your real tan develops underneath in 2-4 hours. Gradual self-tan products build color slowly each day, and will reach maximum results in one week with daily use.
